"4. Subdivision 1. does not apply to a recipient who would be unable to comply 8
with subd. 1., as determined by the department, or for whom compliance with subd. 9
1. would be unduly burdensome, as determined by the department, because the 10
recipient follows certain religious traditions, rituals, or requirements related to food 11
consumption or handling or other preparation. To be exempt under this subdivision, 12
a recipient must provide notice to the department in writing, which may be by
electronic mail or facsimile transmission, attesting to the recipient's following of the 2
religious traditions, rituals, or requirements related to food.".
